Apples are on the lunch line nearly every day and diners will have the opportunity to sample different varieties and apple-filled dishes.USDA regulations require that all students have at least one half a cup of fruit or vegetable on their tray. Students are developing a love of vegetables and creating life-long healthy habits. Whitsons provides a variety of gluten free meals available to any student that requires one.
